Microsoft has set foot in the social media sector with MSN Reporter which is a Digg style social news site. According to LiveSide, it was created by the Dutch MSN team and has been avialable in beta since October 2006. It has now been launched in Netherlands, Belgium and Norway. The ‘Digg’ and ‘Bury’ buttons are replaced with ‘Kicken’ and ‘Dumpen.’



Allowing users to share and rate news on the site, it has a simple interface, much like the Digg of old. It also has Windows Live integration, with Alerts, add to Live.com and with a BlogIt! option sending posts straight to Windows Live Spaces.

The site has reportedly received 500,000 and 800,000 users visting the site in the 1st and 2nd months respectively. Articles have got up to 10,000 votes and 1,000 comments. The stats show that this is not a poor imitation of Digg though.
